The smell of new-mown grass almost knocked me over, and then transported me back to the grandparentsí house on the hill, then almost immediately into a memory of a summer morning sitting at their kitchen table, the Today show on the little TV on the counter, as we talked about the astronauts and Tang. Momís school district always went a day or two past mine at the end of the year, so stashing me next door with the grand-parents was the easy answer for everyone. I realized today I miss them both, even though grandmaís been gone for many years.
